We build partnerships that empower people and communities.

Together people can achieve impressive things. That’s why the Center for Service and Learning (CSL) exists: to bring together the citizens of Indianapolis and the students, faculty, and staff at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to improve people’s lives locally and beyond.

Many people at IUPUI and in Indianapolis are already doing important service-related work. We partner with them to enhance their endeavors—to develop programs, research, and resources that are educationally meaningful and full of impact.

A Global Leader with Local Impact

A former IUPUI Signature Center designee (2007-2015), CSL is an international leader in the research and practice of service and learning. Our staff members are experts in civic engagement, service-related scholarship, and community partnerships. The work we and our partners do has a profound impact.

We can help you have an impact, too. You may want to volunteer, integrate service learning into a course, establish a campus-community partnership, or conduct research or assessment. Whatever your goal is, we will help you accomplish it.
